MADRID, 12 Aug. (CultureLeisure) –
The House of the Dragonthe long-awaited prequel to Game of Throneswill see the light next August 21. And a few days after its premiere, its showrunner, Ryan J. Countyhas revealed what it is the great difference between the two series.
It was in a recent interview with SFX Magazine where the writer wanted to explain how a special interest was placed on costume design when developing the production of this fictionwhich will tell how the tagaryen house She became the wealthiest and most influential in all of Westeros.
“The big change we made was that of fashion”Condal pointed out, before adding that “Even in the Middle Ages, if you pay attention to how a soldier was dressed in 1100 versus one in 1300, there is a big difference. It’s one of the elements that we play with, but even when you do it, you pay homage to the design of the main series, because it has to feel like they’re part of the same universe.”
This being the main change with respect to the original fiction, Condal reinforces the idea that, despite keeping certain similarities, the characters’ attire is one of the major differentiating components between The House of the Dragon and Game of Thrones.
Based on the novel by George R. R. Martin, fire and bloodthis prequel, which will be set 200 years before the events of the original serieswill focus on the stage of reign of Viserys I after inheriting a peaceful kingdom from his grandfather Jaehaerys I.
